The Sires of Time is a new piece of Arthurian legend.The story is bold and interesting, but the art is phenomenally eye catching. The whole issue was done with a brush and crow quill (according to the back page). These ink drawings are some of the best I’ve seen, and it compliments the styling of the story as a whole. Dragunas’s art is reminiscent of the classic wood block prints found in 15th and 16th century European texts. The style is both visually stunning and functional. The Sires of Time was by far the best book of Wizard World Cleveland.
The weather could not have been nicer for Wizard World’s first ever Cleveland comic convention. (I say this, because in Northeast Ohio half a foot of snow is usually the best welcome we can offer to newcomers.) After a good trudge through the slush-covered streets, I managed to step out of the chill air and into the press of con-goers. Despite the icy conditions, Cleveland’s convention center was packed with attendees.
It’s Sunday and the final day of the 2014 San Diego Comic-Con, typically the quietest day of the convention. After a crazy weekend of Avengers: Age of Ultron, Ant-Man, Guardians of the Galaxy 2, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Godzilla 2, Skull Island, Mad Max: Fury Road, Crimson Peak, a ton of TV, and comic news, we’ve got one last big film announcement. As reported by Deadline from the Dynamite Comic’s panel, while promoting the Django Unchained/Zorro crossover comic, Quentin Tarantino confirmed that he is officially moving forward with his new western The Hateful Eight.
